Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and Grammy Award-winner® John Fogerty and Spoon added to the star-filled lineup of artists taking part in Imagine: John Lennon 75th Birthday Concert, an all-star concert event celebrating the music and message of the legendary music icon.
"Fortunate Son In Concert" will celebrate the music and culture of the 1960s, with a special focus on the year 1969. Through exclusive footage and personal stories, the intimate show will feature a look at the pivotal year Fogerty recorded three separate Creedence Clearwater Revival albums including Bayou Country, Green River and Willy and the Poor Boys.
The annual Stagecoach Festival focuses mainly on country music, but the event also has traditionally featured some big-name rock artists, and the forthcoming 10th installment of the fest is no exception. John Fogerty , The Doobie Brothers and The Marshall Tucker Band are scheduled to perform at the 2016 edition of the three-day extravaganza, scheduled to run from April 29 to May 1 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.
Rock & Roll Hall of Famer John Fogerty is our guest this week! We talk about his new book Fortunate Son, his wife Julie, Creedence Clearwater Revival, his love for the early Sun Records sounds, Carl Perkins, discovering Hank Williams from an early Jerry Lee Lewis cover version and lots more. John's passion for life, love and rock & roll continues to shine brightly!
It can’t be easy to get people excited about your fundraiser year after year, especially when it takes place on a Saturday night. And we certainly were feeling some fatigue last month by the time we received the invitation for the Michael J. Fox Foundation’s annual A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Cure Parkinson’s benefit, which took place this weekend in the ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria.
John Varvatos was honored last night at the 18th annual Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation benefit dinner and auction at Cipriani Wall Street. The "Collaborating for a Cure" event had a "Rock Out!" theme, with special musical guest John Fogerty and his band more than living up to it in a 90-minute set full of his classic Creedence Clearwater Revival and solo hits that kept attendees who had to get up in the morning on their feet until midnight
